Building Strong Cases For Injured Motorcycle Riders

Motorcycle riders face heightened risks on the road for several reasons. One of the main reasons is that most drivers fail to notice motorcycle riders and when they do, they are often unable to judge how much distance to keep between themselves and a motorcycle.

That lack of respect on the road can sometimes show up in the courtroom, too. A jury may be unfamiliar with what it takes to safely operate a car or truck near a motorcycle. Jurors may be prejudiced about motorcycle riders and make assumptions that riders are not safe.

Overcoming Prejudices Against Motorcycle Riders

Our firm understands the potential pitfalls that we could face while building a case for an injured motorcycle rider and we know how to overcome them. We educate juries about what constitutes safe operation and clearly and persuasively illustrate how the other driver caused the accident.

Catastrophic Injuries

Another element that sets motorcycle wrecks apart is the severity of the injuries that riders suffer. Motorcycle wrecks can cause some of the most serious injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Amputations
  • Road rash
